Incat Crowther launched Kilimanjaro IV, a 45-meter passenger ferry for the African Operator Coastal Fast Ferries.

The vessel capitalizes on the rapid growth in the operator’s passenger numbers, bringing the Coastal Fast Ferries’ fleet to seven Incat Crowther-designed vessels.

A process of close cooperation between the builder, Richardson Devine Marine, operator and designer resulted in a vessel offering high speed, high passenger capacity and rugged efficiency.

Kilimanjaro IV’s main deck has two partitioned passenger spaces – an 86-seat business class cabin, and a 168-seat economy class cabin. Upstairs is a premium class cabin with 88 seats. Each class has its own independent boarding ramp to port and starboard. Additional boarding is provided on the upper deck aft.

Exterior economy class seating is provided on the upper aft deck (130 seats), roof deck (90 seats) and foredeck (70 seats).

In addition to high passenger capacity, to service growing demand for fast freight, Kilimanjaro IV has a large freight capacity capable of carrying 32 freight carts in a dedicated freight compartment, with a fully integrated freight transfer system.

Powered by a quartet of Cummins KTA 50 M2 main engines, Kilimanjaro IV shares common machinery with earlier vessels in the fleet, to streamline maintenance and spares inventory. Propulsion is through KaMeWa 50A3 waterjets. In recent trials, Kilimanjaro IV achieved a loaded service speed of 35 knots, and is capable of a top speed of 38 knots.
